2 Corinthians 4:4 “…in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” (NASB)
I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. While fishing with my dad, there arose a disagreement on where to fish. I had caught my limit and began to tell him where to cast his lure. He disagreed and began to cast in another direction. Having just limited out, I couldn't understand why he wouldn't cast where I told him to. Today's verse speaks about the god of this world, notice the small "g", that he has blinded the mind of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel, the God with the big "G.” As Dad continued to cast in the different spot, he yelled out, "I got one.” Sure, I thought to myself, he must be lying. No sooner did I think this than he begins to bring fish after fish into the boat. All his fish were much larger than mine. My eyes were blinded by what I thought was the best place to fish, but I soon learned. However, it took seeing to believe. Don't allow the god of this world, Satan, to blind your eyes to the things of God. Look for the glory of Christ, the image of God, and you may just find yourself truly amazed with what you find in your nets!
